Propeller Park Climbing Ahead  

Progress at the Park VNY, a 30-acre development project dedicated to propeller aircraft, is climbing full speed ahead.  Thanks to close collaboration among Pacific Aviation Development (PAD), Los Angeles World Airports and community stakeholders, the construction of numerous new hangars, tie-down spaces and other facilities have been completed.  

To date, 68 permanent hangars in seven new buildings, 38 aircraft tie-down spaces, a self-serve fueling station and a pilot’s lounge have been constructed, with a second pilot’s lounge and aircraft wash rack coming soon. The underground fire protection and electrical infrastructure has also been installed, as well as a 170,000-gallon pit for storm water mitigation.   

In addition, approximately 85 portable hangars have been relocated to the site from other airport leaseholds. Per the VNY master plan, this has permitted other development projects to move forward and contribute to the airport’s overall economic health. Currently, 190 aircraft are housed on-site.  

In the future, seven additional buildings will be erected including a two-story terminal building with a restaurant, 23 commercial hangars and two large maintenance hangars. Construction is expected to be completed in the second half of 2018.  

“This has been a challenging, but also a rewarding project,” said Eric Steinhauer of PAD. “We are very grateful for the strong support that we have received. Now that everything is coming together, we hope the VNY pilot community will enjoy the new facilities for many years.”
